In one of the early auctions of 2015, a 31.5ac non-residential parcel of tillage ground at Coolroe, Clonroche, Co Wexford sold at auction for €480,000 (over €15,200/ac).

Located just over 1km from the village of Clonroche, the land is in one division and has access from two roads. Currently in stubble it is described by Anne Carton of agents PN O'Gorman as top quality tillage or grazing ground and one of the finest parcels of land to come on the market in that area in recent times.

Bidding opened at €300,000 and with three bidders showing keen interest the price on offer soon reached €400,000. One of the bidders then dropped out and the remaining two stayed with the action until the price hit €450,000. Another party joined the bidding and stayed with it until the property sold at €480,000.

Staying in the sunny southeast, Quinn Property is handling the sale by auction of a 22ac residential holding at Coolnagloose, Inch, Gorey, Co Wexford.

Located 1km off the N11 at Toss Byrnes, the farm is 8km north of Gorey and 4km from Kilanerin.

The residence is a timber built, one bedroom dwelling set in a traditional farmyard.

The lands are described as top quality ground with extensive frontage onto two local roads and a stream bounding the other two sides. The farm is divided into five divisions currently in mixture of grass and tillage and is suited to most agricultural enterprises.

The property may be bought in lots or as an entire, with the residence on one acre making up one portion and guided at between €45,000 and €50,000, while the remaining 21ac is guided at between €9,000/ac and €10,000/ac.
